Canterbury Crane Hire

The largest benefit of a mobile crane is its flexibility and, of course, its mobility. In urban situations, in particular, where multiple obstructions are present, a mobile crane is uniquely suited to the setting. A mobile crane is able to access narrow passages and sites that have a limited amount of entrance space. In many cases, a static crane simply cannot be set up practically for many types of settings. In these cases, the flexible mobile crane is the ideal solution.
